North Yorkshire Police have seized nearly £10,000 of stolen clothing and arrested three people following a tip-off from a member of the public.

On Saturday afternoon (9 December 2023) police were alerted to a vehicle which was acting suspiciously at York Designer Outlet. Officers stopped the vehicle in the York area and discovered stolen clothing which has an estimated value of £9688. The property was recovered and three occupants were arrested.

A 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft, driving a motor vehicle when unfit through drugs and possession of a suspected class- B drug.

A 30-year-old man and a 43-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of theft.

All three were charged with shop theft and released with bail conditions that prevent them from entering North Yorkshire.  

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said; “ At a time when the retail industry is experiencing its busiest season of the year shoplifting is not only a nuisance, but it carries significant financial burden.

“We are committed to swiftly acting on all information to help reduce this type of offending. I would like to thank the member of the public who contacted us as this led to three arrests and the recovery of thousands of pounds of stolen property. ”
